2008’s Final Presidential Debate: What’s your theme song?

Posted: 06:10 AM ET

News Correspondent Richard Lui

We’ve been blogging about each debate and what you’ve thought of the candidates’ performance, during the primaries and now for the general election. We’ve talked about tax plans, race, and campaign teams. It’s hard to believe but now we're just days from picking the next president, after nearly two years of debate and stumping.

ALT TEXT

Wonder if either of these guys had a Freddie Mercury power-ballad stuck in their head?

So in a farewell of sorts to the debates, what would be your ode to what has certainly been a campaign like no other election we have ever seen?

Tell us what song is your political debate theme song, whether it’s because of issues you particularly care about right now, or because of whom you think won. Blog about the song title and artist you would choose to sum up this election.

And if you get really jazzed up, send us your debate theme song that you wrote and performed in an iReport. All you have to do is click here to send one in and we’ll rush it to air for you when we can. Here are some that have caught our attention: this one starts by asking “How do you feel about the economy, are we in a recession?” Then looking back, this one looks at the GOP campaigns and this one the Democrats.

If you don’t have the time to record your personal theme song right now, not to worry. To start, just blog your ideas of a song and the artist who sang it, that characterizes what you thought of last night’s debate, and we can start with that!

Be sure to include WHY you chose the song you did, so we can share that information on air.

How about "Lyin' Eyes" by the Eagles. What's the point in watching the debate when neither side can tell the truth? They ought to have the "fact check" at the end of each question during the debate. People believe anything they hear or read.

Ben T. Douglasville, GA   October 16th, 2008 6:22 am ET

I think the campaign theme song was Lies, Lies, Lies by Guns 'N Roses, as both candidates were skirting around and only telling half-truths and rumored lies.


Meygan   October 16th, 2008 6:23 am ET

the debate kinda reminded me of Eye of The Tiger by survivor because they were cat scratching each other and trying to win the debate and their eyes were on the prize!


mary ruggiero   October 16th, 2008 6:24 am ET

I think the theme from "Rocky" would be a great theme song.


debby langley   October 16th, 2008 6:24 am ET

The first thing to pop into my mind when I heard the question was the Stealers Wheel song, "Stuck in the Middle With You".
You know........"Don't know why I came here tonight. I've got a feeling that something ain't right"......"Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right"..........., etc.

The only song that does justice for either candidate or anyone that felt either of them presented plans that actually would work, verus pandering to their electoral bases.

BRIDGE OVER TROUBLE WATER!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lisa from Dearborn, MI   October 16th, 2008 6:37 am ET

Theme song for John McCain should be "Rolling Stone" from Bob Dylan because no matter what John McCain says, the voters are saying to him, his Republican cronies who created the mess on Wall St. which is really hurting Main St. & who believe in "Privitization" when it comes to Wall St.'s wealth (bailing out/rewarding corporations, banking industry, and insurance industry), but they believe in "Socialization" when it comes to Wall St.'s (& its fat-cats) losses, the voters are saying : "Tell me how does it feel...to be on your own..with no direction home...likke a complete unknown...like a rolling stone?". Or, the theme song foro McCain & the Republicans could be REO Speedwagon's "Take It On The Run". Best lyric which applies is : "you're under the gun so you take it on the run..." regarding McCain 's scurring around trying to save himself, his legacy in politics & his Republican cohorts in this year's election.

John McCain – Kind of a Drag by the Buckinghams

Barrack Obama – Some Day Soon by Judy Collins


Tom Tedesco   October 16th, 2008 6:46 am ET

The song would HAVE to be Bob Dylan's "Too Much of Nothing"... The perfect paraphrase for the entire election process this time around... BTW, The Music Machine did "Talk Talk".

HIT ME WITH YOU'RE BEST SHOT BY PAT BENATAR. Once again (future) President Obama has been hit with Sen. John McCain's best shot, but it has only strengthened Obama's campaign. FIRE AWAY!!!


Robert Curlin   October 16th, 2008 6:47 am ET

I'd say "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" by just about any American left in the mood to "sing," considering our choices and the fact both of the candidates are a part of the WORST, most un-American "legislative" branch of government we've ever had...

Let's see, nobody ever seems to bring up that in 1911 Congress fixed the number of the House of Representatives to 435. That means in the mid-70's (last time we had such a daunting recession), each US Rep SHOULD have been representing about 460,000 people. Make that "more or less" because of local populations and the fact every state had to have representatives...

Using today's population figures (including LEGAL immigration—but NOT the 30-50 million illegals in the country), we're looking at each representative "representing" about 702,125. That's about a 52.6% DILUTION of representation of the voice of "We the People" in just about 30 years.

And you consider that we have over 42,000 "lobbyists" registered on K Street; meaning now EACH of those Reps & Senators has an average of 535 "special interests" throwing, uhm, "incentives" their way at all times to help pass self-serving legislation????

According to the Constitution, the HOUSE originates tax bills–but the SENATE is a "check" on abuse, because both arms must pass a bill to become law. Only in the Senate, the "checks" seem to be being deposited more than exercised.

Does that not essentially mean our "country's" best interests have been "for sale" for decades?

Therefore, since Joe the Plumber is so outnumbered here by temptation that has repeatedly proven "too big to resist" and left us in this sorry economic situation–driven entirely by greed of those abusing their positions of "trust" within the government–may I again recommend to those who feel like singing, consider "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."

"The Hokey-Pokey" – Both candidates put one foot in and shook it all about for a minute and then jumped back from the issues to push the topics they felt comfortable with. A lot of flailing without a lot of movement.

What would you say
Don't drop the big one
You a monkey on a string
Don't cut my life line
If a doggie on a chain
Don't bite the mailman
What would you say

Well, I was there when the bear
Ate his head, he thought it was a candy
Everyone goes in the end

Knock, knock on the door
Who's it for, there's nobody in here
Look in the mirror my friend

I don't understand at best
Cannot speak for all the rest
But a morning rise, a lifetime's passed me by

Sounds like a debate wrap-up, right? Thank you, CNN.

You keep making me ill
You keep making me ill

Since there's not a dime of difference between these two candidates (e.g., they both voted for the Wall Street bailout), the theme song has got to be, "Old man take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you" by Neil Young.


M.S. Miller   October 16th, 2008 7:01 am ET

Mike Love's Over and Over Again


Tom W (Ohio)   October 16th, 2008 7:01 am ET

As our family finished the debate race over the last two months, I believe the presidential debate race theme song should be "YOU'VE LOST THAT LOVIN' FEELING".


Karen   October 16th, 2008 7:02 am ET

I can't get no...Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones


Readyforittobeover   October 16th, 2008 7:03 am ET

My theme song would be for John McCain.....Tres Adkins, I Got My Game On.


Will in California   October 16th, 2008 7:04 am ET

McCain is called "President Bush", while democratic opponent is called "The Great Pretender" (song by The Platters).


Richard Lui, Morning Express   October 16th, 2008 7:04 am ET

MORNING ALL, THANKS FOR GETTING US YOUR SONGS! IF YOU COULD TELL US WHY YOU PICKED A PARTICULAR SONG, THAT WOULD GREAT TOO SO WE CAN SHARE YOUR THINKING ON AIR!

"I got plenty o' nothin'" (from the musical "Porgy & Bess." That's what both Obama & McCain had for me.....NOTHIN!!


Pramis Nicolas Montero Rivera   October 16th, 2008 7:07 am ET

another comment on the same song "Why can't we be friends" by War, LOL....just look at the lyrics....

Why can't we be friends? (x4)

I'd kinda like to be the President
so I can show you how your money's spent.......

.....Why can't we be friends? (x4)

The color of your skin don't matter to me
As long as we can live in harmony.....
(McCain to Obama)

.....Why can't we be friends? (x4)

......Sometimes I don't speak too bright
but yet I know what I'm talking about (Palin)

Hahaha this is your song guys!

Carol   October 16th, 2008 7:10 am ET

I think Obama's new song should be "Hit Me With Your Best Shot"

Also – Why dion't they ever mention imigration when they talk about the economy. I've heard that it costs more to help these illegal limigrants with free benefits each day than it costs to fund the war on a daily basis.?????


Bryan Johnson   October 16th, 2008 7:10 am ET

The song "Talk Talk" by the British group Talk Talk...look up the lyrics :-)


Harold Coombs III   October 16th, 2008 7:11 am ET

My song would be Same Song, by Digital Underground. Promises aren't worth a lot during a campaign, and you trust a politician with your money as much as you do a 17 year old boy with your daughter.


Bob T.   October 16th, 2008 7:11 am ET

I think "What's going on" is the most appropriate song for both the debate and the country right now. It appears that neither candidate knows what's going on except for attacking each other and spouting off plans that will never be accomplished as stated. The country wants to know whats going on with the economy and no one has gotten that right so far either. Help me Rhonda...

Kilroy_60   October 16th, 2008 7:18 am ET

When I heard Robin ask for a theme song for the third and last Presidential debate there was no doubt in my mind. It's "Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road" by Loudon Wainwright III.


Ren   October 16th, 2008 7:18 am ET

Their theme song for the night should be "I want it all" by Queen, better yet, that should be McCain's song ,and "We're not gonna take it" by Twisted Sister should be Obama's theme


Harold Bailey   October 16th, 2008 7:18 am ET

The song that comes to mind for me is "Taxman" by the Beatles.


carmen   October 16th, 2008 7:18 am ET

Hank Williams Jr. Country boy will survive


Teri - California   October 16th, 2008 7:19 am ET

The song should be "Politician" by Cream. If you know the song, that's all there is to be said!


Arnold   October 16th, 2008 7:19 am ET

"Lyin' Eyes" by the Eagles cause If I had a dime for every time McCain blinked last night, I could retire today – behind every blink there was a lie.....actually all his blinking was disturbing!!!


Charlie fink   October 16th, 2008 7:19 am ET

If I am elected, this is how it will be:

I'll make the Russians laugh
I'll feed the hungry people everywhere.

I'll give Detroit one year
New cars that run on beer
Or anything except gasoline.

Lyrics

Democraps and Repooplicans

Now the bigwheels in D.C.
Suppose to be watching our money
Bailing out the big banks
While the little guy takes his spanks

I've pretty much had enough
Democraps and Repooplicans
I hope Obama makes his change
Or will it be the same old same

I don't know maybe its just me
Its through my eyes what I see
I like to get rid of all of them
Start this process all over again

I've pretty much had enough
Democraps and Repooplicans
I hope Obama makes his change
Or will it be the same old same

Who the heck are we to trust
It's like the fox and the hen house
Aren't they the ones that made this miss
Plus reaped all the financial benefits

I've pretty much had enough
Democraps and Repooplicans
I hope Obama makes his change
Or will it be the same old same

Theme song for Debate "Dear John"
Dear John

Dear John composed by John Sullivan

Performed by Wendy Talbot

Original Air Dates: 1988 – 1992 (NBC

Words go like this :
Dear John. Dear John.
By the time you read these lines I'll be gone.

Life goes on, right or wrong
Now the sun is dead and gone. Dear John.

Since we've sung love's last song. Dear John.
Since we've sung love's last song. Poor John.
Since we've sung love's last song. Dear John

But look at me I'm almost cryin' but that don't keep your love from dyin'

No One Came- part of this song, " no one came for miles around and said, man, who's he?" Pretty much tells it all as far as this election is concerned. Americans are upset over the housing debacle, and most seem to have forgotten that this started years ago when Carter was in office, yeah, lets make the banks loan money to people that will not be able to pay, forclose on the property and do it again. What a scam and guess who pays the tab-you and I!

Gilbert   October 16th, 2008 7:43 am ET

The theme requested for this debate:

" no contest " ....Al Hirt- Green Hornet

MCCain is unable to articulate his distorted message, and lies to the about Obama's acquaintances...

How could McCain know with certainty what was discussed with the now Famous "Joe the Plumber" or what happened in Bill Ayres living room, if he was not present? Does he suffer among other things of ADD, or is he determined to lie?

If John Macain spent as much time addressing what "we the people" think is important, instead of trying to come up with ways of wasting our time trying to make Barak Obama somehow seem responsible for issues he clearly has no part in, it would have made his debate more succesful. Obama clearly kept his cool and let McCain hang himself with his incessive pointless attacks.

This is putting it pretty bluntly....

R.E.M. – It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes,
an aeroplane – Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn,
world serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs.
Feed it off an aux speak,, grunt, no, strength,
The ladder starts to clatter with fear fight down height.
Wire in a fire, representing seven games, a government for hire and a combat site.
Left of west and coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck.
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped.
Look at that low playing!
Fine, then.
Uh oh, overflow, population, common food, but it'll do.
Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and the revered and the right – right.
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Six o'clock – TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign towers.
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.
Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting.
Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate.
Light a candle, light a votive. Step down, step down.
Watch your heel crush, crushed. Uh-oh, this means no fear cavalier.
Renegade steer clear! A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies.
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (It's time I had some time alone) and I feel fine.
(I feel fine)

It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (It's time I had some time alone) and I feel fine.

The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide. Mountains sit in a line
Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Brezhnev. Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right.

It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (It's time I had some time alone) and I feel fine.

It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it (It's time I had some time alone) and I feel fine.

It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (It's time I had some time alone) and I feel fine.

It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it. (It's time I had some time alone)
It's the end of the world as we know it (It's time I had some time alone) and I feel fine..

It goes "It's like a JUNGLE SOMETIMES, IT MAKES YOU WONDER HOW YOU KEEP FROM GOING UNDER" By CURTIS BLOW. It's such a old song I forgot the right word's. But this is the right version. disregard the other one.


Day Walker   October 16th, 2008 7:53 am ET

1993 Clinton Inaugural Ball featured Don Henley's 'Dirty Laundry'.
That's the first song I thought of.

For McCain I'll have to go with "Liar" by Aldo Nova (You liar, liar, it's too late)

For Obama I'm choosing "Get in the Ring" by Guns and Roses (you'll be lucky to get out of life alive).

It's sad, do you want the devil, or his boy, either way the citizens are the ones that lose.

Question – who's gonna bring the dogs home, because they are still running. Thanks- Susan


Dana S., Atlanta   October 16th, 2008 8:01 am ET

I think the best theme song for the last McCain/Obama debate should be "Pick a Little, Talk a Little" from the broadway show The Music Man. The beginning lyrics are:

Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little, talk a little,
cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more

Pick a little, talk a little, pick a little,
talk a little, cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot, pick a little more

cissie morgan   October 16th, 2008 8:03 am ET

"Your Cheating Heart." (will tell on you), when OBama lied about his affiliation with the democratic -Acorn Vote Fraud!

McCain's song, "I don't need Your Rocking Chair," because he is clearly the most knowledgable and best candidate!

I am a Democrat, but I am voting for McCain!

1993 Clinton Inaugural Ball featured Don Henley’s ‘Dirty Laundry’.
That’s the first song I thought of.

Then there’s Queen’s ‘Slightly Mad’.
Which basically reminds me of the slow motion decline of McCain's ability to make sense of things. Seems McCain has this song playing in the back of his mind when he should be answering the questions that were asked of him:

When the outside temperature rises
And the meaning is oh so clear
One thousand and one yellow daffodils
Begin to dance in front of you – oh dear
Are they trying to tell you something ?
You're missing that one final screw
You're simply not in the pink my dear
To be honest you haven't got a clue
I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened – happened
It finally happened – ooh woh
It finally happened – I'm slightly mad – oh dear !
Ha ha ha ha ha


Jerry Keys   October 16th, 2008 8:10 am ET

I see the theme song as You can't touch this by M.C HAMMER


Cindy Hill   October 16th, 2008 8:10 am ET

"A Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash describes it for me, lol
It seems that McCain fell down down down, and the flames went higher....And it burns burns burns.....


Samantha Watkins   October 16th, 2008 8:10 am ET

I think Pat Benatars song "Hit Me Wtih Your Best Shot" not only describes the debate but the whole campaign process.


cissie morgan   October 16th, 2008 8:10 am ET

"Your cheatin heart," by Hank Williams, for Obama lying about his connection to the Acorn voting fraud and, "I don't need your rocking chair," by George Jones-for McCain's song, because he is clearly the best candidate in my eyes!

Ms. Kim in DFW, TX   October 16th, 2008 8:11 am ET

Song: "Mama Said Knock You Out"- by LL Cool J.

I picked this song because I think it was a TKO for Obama against McCain. Obama was very well composed and focused on the REAL issues that matter to most folks.

"Your cheatin heart," by Hank Williams, for Obama lying about his connection to the Acorn voting fraud and, "I don't need your rocking chair," by George Jones-for McCain's song, because he may be a little older, but is clearly the best candidate in my eyes!


Douglas Scharbrough   October 16th, 2008 8:12 am ET

I think the perfect theme song will be a tongue in cheek song called King Henery the eigth . The part that applies is the refrain that says "second line same as the first".

The party's over
It's time to call it a day
They've burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away
It's time to wind up the masquerade
Just make your mind up the piper must be paid

The party's over
The candles flicker and dim
You danced and dreamed through the night
It seemed to be right just being with him
Now you must wake up, all dreams must end
Take off your makeup, the party's over
It's all over, my friend

Sherry   October 16th, 2008 8:16 am ET

I think that 'Mama Said Knock You Out' by L.L. Cool J to characterize McCain's attempt to go negative in the debate and not stick to the issues that are facing the nation. Of course, we know that he did not knock anyone out other than himself.

Taxman by the Beatles because no matter who wins this will be the song for the next four years.


Joe C   October 16th, 2008 8:17 am ET

"Ball of Confusion" by the Temptations is the perfect song. "Vote for me and I'll set you free."


Todd grover   October 16th, 2008 8:18 am ET

Worry by Georgia's own Widespread Panic sums it up. worrying about to feed the kids or take you medication, if your going to keep your house or not, or those about to retire will they be able to or will in five or ten years they all run out of money like i say again "worrying about my worries "

I think the song would be "Irreplaceable" By Beyonce, as Robin had mentionied only using the phrase. "To the left, to the left, The US is going broke if we vote to the left."


Lakia   October 16th, 2008 8:18 am ET

For Obama since he didn't change anything regarding his message...Just Fine by Mary J Blige because he has been consistent. For John McCain, Crazy by Gunz N Roses (because I think he and Cindy are beyond that saying by Cindy McCain saying that Obama has been running one of the dirtest campaigns.)


Gerald   October 16th, 2008 8:18 am ET

Last nights debate reminded me of Pat Benatar's song, Hit me with your best shot.
McCain just kept throwing those haymakers, while Obama just kept bobbing and weaving.


Brenda Derrick   October 16th, 2008 8:19 am ET

The song that comes to mind for me is: "Ball of Confusion" by the Temptations. That's what the world is today, and John McCain appeared confused lot.


Michelle Marker   October 16th, 2008 8:19 am ET

How about "hit me with your best shot....fire away", for the way Barack Obama had an answer to all of John McCain's jabs.


David E   October 16th, 2008 8:19 am ET

Barack's theme song is "I've Got Friends in Low Places". It's because of his affiliations with people of questionable character: Rev. Wright, Ayers,......

Both McCain and Barack could also use "The Monkee Theme Song"
"Hey, hey were the monkees!" Both of them have moved backwards on the evolutionary time line.


Darien Brown   October 16th, 2008 8:19 am ET

the song should have been Marvin Sapp – Never Would Have Made It


E.J.   October 16th, 2008 8:19 am ET

A good one for McCain would be "Slip sliding away". Just like his chances at winning the White House.


Peter   October 16th, 2008 8:19 am ET

"Run To The Hills" from Iron Maiden

I like about 1/2 of what McCaine has to say and about 1/2 of what Obama says. The other half of both scares the hell out of me!

For Obama: "A Change is Gonna Come" -Sam Cooke
For McCain: "Stayin' Alive"
both self-explanatory


Sam Pertilla   October 16th, 2008 8:24 am ET

Here are some words to a song I wrote. I think they fit the entire picture; before during and after the debates

People dieing
Babies crying
Violence in the streets

Your not respected
loans rejected
No bills can you meet

Your unemployed
The spouse is annoyed
Your child may be taking drugs

The IRS is in your chest
they're just a bunch of thugs

There's no you crying
just stop trying

You can't keep up the pace...

Pat from Philly   October 16th, 2008 8:24 am ET

"Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow" by Fleetwood Mac sung as a ballad!

As a tax preparer, I advise voters to take their 2007 tax return and look at Obama's economic plan and McCain's economic plan and examine their effect on your 2008 and 2009 tax return. No matter what your filing status, Obama's plan will increase your total tax; McCain's plan will lower your total tax. Check it out!!!

I just have a theme song for Obama. Adventures of Robin Hood. While you may think that is good at first, take a closer look.
If you look online, polls say that Obama won the debate but people still don't trust him so they would vote for McCain. Why? It is his retoric and theme song. Why would anyone raise taxes during economic hardship? Now, only part of that song is right for him. He seems to have a Robin Hood effect on people where they think it is okay to take from the rich and give to the poor. Robin Hood was a thief yet he was revered as a great character. When should stealing be revered as a good thing? Why is it so glamorized? Think about it though. Ronald Reagan, one of our greatest presidents (proven through time), believed in trickle down economics. It works. Large companies employ large numbers of workers. There are queen bees and worker bees. We need all kinds.


melinda   October 16th, 2008 8:26 am ET

"bad to the bone" would be a fitting theme song pointing to Obama, especially when you bring in his associations – Ayers, Wright, etc.

FED UP (WITH ALL OF YOU)

You know I got a good job
But I can’t make my rent
‘Cause I can’t vote myself a pay raise
Like you folks in the government
The economy’s all but ruined
Gas prices on the rise
My health care costs keep climbing
But I’m not surprised

You say you serve the people
But that ain’t what you do
You work for the special interest groups
Who own a piece of you
You made a lot of promises
You ain’t followed through
If you really work for me
Can I fire you

Well the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting screwed
And those of us in the middle got the politician blues
Left wing, right wing, in between, either way we lose
Gotta tell you we’re fed up with all of you

You get all the perks and power
You got a golden parachute
How can you represent me
If you don’t live like I do?
Buy your own insurance,
Pay for your own gas
Try to survive on the salary
Of the American middle class

Well the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting screwed
And those of us in the middle got the politician blues
Well we just keep sinking deeper no matter who we choose
Gotta tell you we’re fed up with all of you

Well the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting screwed
And those of us in the middle got the politician blues
For the people by the people just ain’t ringin’ true
Gotta tell you we’re fed up with all of you

Mary   October 16th, 2008 8:31 am ET

In my opinion Senator Obama won the debate, He maintained his cool while McCain seemed to be getting hot under the collar.

I can choose several George Strait songs to describe my feelings about the political season this year.

"I hate everything".... I don't really like either canidate

"I' ve come to expect from you" as both sides give us nothing but lip service. instead they should lay out the details of their plans and stop trashing their opponent.

"Blame it on Mexico" a better excuse than another 8 years of Bush failed policy

"Write this Down" the request from media to blog like never before

"Fool hearted Memory" ....The ploiticians keep filling our minds with all these wishful political dreams only to let us down...

But youve got being right down to an art
You think youre a genius–you drive me up the wall
Youre a regular original, a know-it-all

Bridge:
Oh-oo-oh, you think youre special
Oh-oo-oh, you think youre something else

That dont impress me much
You think youre cool but have you got the touch
Dont get me wrong, yeah I think youre alright
But that wont keep me warm on the long, cold, lonely night
That dont impress me much

My theme song is “Save the Best for Last” by Vanessa Williams. This debate was definitely the best one yet. McCain showed his true colors. He looked like one of the characters in the movie “Grumpy Old Men.” If he is this way he acts during a Presidential Campaign, think how he will be in the White House. We can not afford a President that is so easily flustered. He has no Presidential quality. Obama on the other hand was cool calm and collected, that is what I want in my next President. Go Obama!!

Kathy   October 16th, 2008 8:51 am ET

"Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" seems rather appropriate-I've watched 4 debates and have not learned much I hadn't already heard or read on my own. 1 question-when Mr. McCain said insurance shouldn't pay for cosmetic and transplants procedures, what did he mean by that?-I hope he was referring to hair transplants-I recently had a liver transplant-and believe me-if insurance wasns't there I'd don't think I'd could have had a transplant-and I wouldn't be sending this blog right now. He should clarify what the heck he is saying-anyone else that has a need for or has had a transplant knows how expensive an ordeal and how emotionally and financially and physically difficult these situations are-his off-the-cuff remark was downright insulting to those of us that have a choice of life or death and he seems to have made light of our medical not "cosmetic" needs for surgery. I don't believe this was his intent-but it is what flew out of his "mouth". If he is going to let this kind of remark slip out of his mouth in a Nationally Televised Debate-what else flies out of his mouth when the world isn't watching??

When the 3rd debate started the auditorium should have played "Here It Goes Again" (by O.K. Go). Then McCain turned into "Rocky" with the "you should've ran against Bush 4 years ago" punch, I thought Eye of the Tiger (by Survivor). But I'm sure they both left the fight "Stronger" (by Kanye West). I should get them to do a dance off with me as the mediator. :)

You're my Honeybunch, Sugarplum
Pumpy-umpy-umpkin, You're my Sweetie Pie
You're my Cuppycake, Gumdrop

"Money, Money, Money" by ABBA. I thought of this because of the economy, and after last night, how it will affect Joe the Plumber. Poor Joe is concerned that under Senator Obama’s tax plan, he would have to pay higher taxes because he would make more than 250K a year. In a sole proprietorship business, the owner of the business pays personal income taxes on the profits made, not the revenue made. So if Joe the plumber pulls in $400K in revenue, and after expenses ends up with only $249.9K in profit, he does not pay any extra taxes. I wish that the salaries of my wife and I combined were so much that we would have to worry about paying some extra tax, but unfortunately, we don't make as much as poor Joe the Plumber wants to make but is afraid to.


Paul Derebery   October 16th, 2008 8:59 am ET

My theme song for the debate is "Bring It Home". The song is by Poison and is on their album "Native Tongue".

2.) Hey World – Michael Franti & Spearhead (Don't take my word, check it out.)
3.) What's Goin' On – Marvin Gaye. (No explaination neccessary.)

McCain / Palin
1.) Anything ever sung at a Klan rally.
2.) Lies – The Waifs
3.) Whatever they play in Bingo halls.

If things stay the way they have been, I have one for myself.....
Exodus...Bob Marley.

You all keep up the good work you're doing.

Theme song to "All in the Family"

The words fit!

"Those Were The Days"

by Lee Adams and Charles Strouse

Boy, the way Glenn Miller played. Songs that made the Hit Parade.

Guys like us, we had it made. Those were the days.

Didn't need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight.

Gee, our old LaSalle ran great. Those were the days.

And you know who you were then. Girls were girls and men were men.

Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.

People seemed to be content. Fifty dollars paid the rent.

Freaks were in a circus tent. Those were the days.

Take a little Sunday spin, go to watch the Dodgers win.

Have yourself a dandy day that cost you under a fin.

Hair was short and skirts were long. Kate Smith really sold a song.

I don't know just what went wrong. Those Were The Days.


Gwendolyn   October 16th, 2008 9:00 am ET

I think it should be "If you Could Read My mind" by Gordon Lightfoot

Obama was more interested in telling us his plan. McCain was more interested in attacking credability. I think Obama can read McCains mind, but the reverse does not hold true. McCain is in a ditch, upside down.

I'm a little Teapot for McCain...He looked as though he were going to whistle last nite. *lol*

Overall them song "HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT"...by pat Benetar! Obama didn't wince a bit!

Neither of these candidate gave us much new to evaluate because quite frankly i'm bored with both. I'm voting Obama but I still....

WHAT DOES JOE HAVE TO DO WITH ME? I am definately not making 250K a year and probably won't make it in 10 years put together....Happy for you Joe...but here in good ole VA we are struggling just to put heating oil in our furnaces....Next time you wanna talk middle class come to Appalachia...Sheesh!

My theme song for the election would be "Stuck In The Middle With You" by Stealers Wheel..There is good and bad to both candidates and im left wondering which is the lesser of the two evils..Ohio is always pounded by candidates,mudslinging,rally's and associated traffic jams ect. after the final debate im still undecided. What I am sure of , I'm tired of the whole election drama..Hurry up November!

"Trying to make some sense of it all,
But I can see that it makes no sense at all,
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor,
'Cause I don't think that I can take anymore
Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you."

The theme song should be "Hot 'n Cold" by Katy Perry. Yep, that's the one.


Kale   October 16th, 2008 9:17 am ET

My pick is 'What I've Done' by Linkin Park and my sister, Zoie, picks 'Land of Confusion' by Disturbed. Thanks

Judith St. King   October 16th, 2008 9:18 am ET

As an elder, I would like to suggest "One eyed, one horned flying purple people eater."


Becca   October 16th, 2008 9:18 am ET

Even though I can't stand country music, this song's title fits perfectly for how I feel about the debates and the election:

"A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action" by Toby Keith.

It'd be nice to see the candidates actually making steps toward enacting their plans instead of just talking about them and tearing the other candidate down. They are not making this election any easier for undecided voters like me.

Actions speak louder than words, boys!


dan   October 16th, 2008 9:18 am ET

You're So Vain – Carly Simon
or
I've Been Better – Brad Paisley

First one because they both seem to think they have all the answers. They obviously think the American public has not figured out our politicians don't have the answers.
The second is for all us tax payers out here. We've been better for sure!

A second one I would suggest would be "Nobody's Real" by Powerman 5000...

Or maybe "What Have You Done For Me Lately" by Janet Jackson

And simply because McCain called Obama a class warrior, it has to be said, "The Warrior" by Patty Smith and Scandal.

Brandi B.   October 16th, 2008 9:21 am ET

From the looks of the economy and the presidential debates, I think the song should be R.E.M.'s "Its the End of the World As We Know It"!


Ray   October 16th, 2008 9:22 am ET

They lie about each other, and a whole lot of other things so my theme song is "Lies" by the knicker Bockers 1965


Jennifer   October 16th, 2008 9:22 am ET

Complicated by Avril Lavigne. This song is mainly for John McCain.


JoLayne Wilson   October 16th, 2008 9:22 am ET

what about Pat Benatar " Hit Me With Your Best Shot"


Ben   October 16th, 2008 9:22 am ET

I'd say the entire deal can be summarized by the Anti-Nowhere League's "So What?" I doubt either candidate listens to old school punk, but the song is rather appropriate at this point of the campaign.


pam   October 16th, 2008 9:22 am ET

I don't have a song, but did you notice that neither candidate had the right color tie? Obama wore red, McCain wore blue. Cindy and Michelle got it right, however. Cindy had a red dress and Michelle had a blue one...

David Pyland   October 16th, 2008 9:22 am ET

The way things appear in the US and this election cycle, the title song should be a song by Merle Haggard "Are The Good Times Really Over For Good!" If you can find the track, you should play it for your viewers.


Anne-Marie   October 16th, 2008 9:22 am ET

"Waiting on the World to Change" By John Mayer because "We see everything that's going on with the world and those who lead it, it just feels like we don't have the means to rise above and beat it. So we keep waiting on the world to change."

"When you trust your television, what you get is what you got, cause when they own the information they can bend it all they want."

"That's why we're waiting on the world to change."

Linda   October 16th, 2008 9:24 am ET

This song establishes their agenda in terms of their objective to be the leader in the Brass Ring; they cannot buy us, but they are trying.

Can't Buy Me Love
Writers: Lennon, McCartney; lead vocal: McCartney

Can't buy me love, love
Can't buy me love

I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend if it makes you feel alright
I'll get you anything my friend if it makes you feel alright
'Cause I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

I'll give you all I got to give if you say you love me too
I may not have a lot to give but what I got I'll give to you
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

Can't buy me love, everybody tells me so
Can't buy me love, no no no, no

Say you don't need no diamond ring and I'll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of thing that money just can't buy
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love


Lisa McInnis   October 16th, 2008 9:24 am ET

I think John Prine's Some Humans Ain't Humans pretty much sums up my idea of McCain aka W. Jr.... While he claims not to be Bush he pretty much could pass for his twin.
Favorite part....
Some cowboy from Texas starts his own war in Iraq
Some humans ain't humans, some people ain't kind


antonio   October 16th, 2008 9:24 am ET

How about "If I had a million dollars" by Bare Naked Ladies"

Instead of bailing out the banks for a cost of $700,000,000,000.00!
How about backing our citizens for a cost of a mere $350,000,000.00
A million dollars per citizen.

How is the economy, stock markets, banking, and housing going to help the U.S. Citizens who have had most of their jobs sold over seas where labor is much cheaper? These candidates are a riot, Its a popularity contest like american idol; Its a question of who can blow more smoke up the others behind.

I think tht the song for OBAMA should be WE RIDE by Mary J Blige, she has been a huge inspiration in my life and i know he will be a great President for the United States of America!


Richard S   October 16th, 2008 9:27 am ET

Hey guys
My choice for a theme song would have to be "Timebomb" by Beck. He released this as a single in 2007, but it captures the candidates' lack of specifics in their economic plans while the economy/timebomb ticks away.


patrick pyle   October 16th, 2008 9:27 am ET

TIED UP IN KNOTS. This is a song I wrote that perfecly sets the tone,for the debates.People have to watch what they say an do,or the knots only get tighter. Tied up in Knots you can never untie.


L McLay   October 16th, 2008 9:28 am ET

The theme song for last nights debate should have been Jud Strunks Dead Skumks in the Middle of the Road


Gary Copas   October 16th, 2008 9:28 am ET

The song that best describes the debate should be "Set'em up Joe and Play walkin the floor" by Vern Gosdin. For joe the plumer who seemed to be the main charater.


Bobby C.   October 16th, 2008 9:29 am ET

Here are my Song choices for last nights debate.
The Economy: "Start Me Up" the Rolling Stones
The Debate: "You Give Love a Bad Name" Bon Jovi
John Mc Cain: "I'm Not In Love" 10cc
"The Grand Illusion" Styx
Borack Obama: "We Are the World" M. Jackson & Friends
Joe Biden: "Old Time Rock n' Roll" Bob Segar
Sarah Palen: "Friends In Low Places" Garth Brooks
The Morning Express: "We Will Rock You" Queen
"We Are the Champions"
"Shake It Up" The Cars

I could go on, and on, being a former DJ from the 70's & 80's it is so amazing how much life can imitate art today. Robin, you and your team are the reason I wake up every morning to start my day, keep up the good work.

Hey robin
The theme for the presidential debate should be:
PROMISES MADE, PROMISES BROKEN – TIFFANY
If ANY song was fitting, it would be that one!


April King   October 16th, 2008 9:35 am ET

I think "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne sums it up. Especially the line,

Heirs of a cold war
Thats what weve become
Inheriting troubles Im mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
Im living with something that just isnt fair

I am going off the rails on a crazy train.


Troy   October 16th, 2008 9:36 am ET

Money for Nothing by Dire Straits... I think the song says it all


Jay Thompson   October 16th, 2008 9:36 am ET

Hey, Robin.......

How about some circus music from the "Big Top"? After all, it truly is a circus-type atmosphere – we're just missing the "big top" and the three rings. The "clowns" are already in place!

robb   October 16th, 2008 9:36 am ET

Good morning Robin, here is my thought. I watch and listen to these two battle and attack each other's plan for the country. I am just wondering how either of them thinks they are going to get thier plan "passed" once one of them is just a Senetor again. I f both think the other's plan is wrong, is that not tell all of us neither is going to vote for the others plan!........hmmmmm! Like I said, just a thought!

Lynn   October 16th, 2008 9:41 am ET

Listening to Obama talk about taxing people, spreading the wealth, mandating goverment chosen healthcare, so called "Human Rights' with his lack of regard to the unborn and his other Socialistic ideas makes me think of the song "Danger Zone" by Kenny Logins and "Lying Eyes" by the Eagles. If Americans do wake up and see the Socialism he is wanting for this country and he becomes President, we ALL will be singing "Feel like a Number" by Bob Seagar.


DAVID   October 16th, 2008 9:41 am ET

1. "Dedicated Follower of Fashion" by the Kinks


J Roberts   October 16th, 2008 9:41 am ET

My choice is Sixteen Tons. "Another day older and deeper in debt, St Peter don't you call me cause I can't come" really applies here. I am nearing 60 and will never be able to retire. There does not seem to be any middle class relief on the horizon from either side. I better get back to work now. (still trying to decide who I am voting against as I see nothing to vote for)


Jill in Illinois   October 16th, 2008 9:41 am ET

Robin, I want a President who knows waht the american people have already sacraficed. New Orleans drowned under the republican watch. These were hard working tax paying citizens. They were already disenfranchised and then the Republican Goverment really said YOU DOn'T MATTER. This one is for OBAMA, he is willing to pay more taxes on my behalf because I am unemployed and fall in the same bracket with people making less than 200K. Creed, : "My Sacrafice"

Taking about Taxes.... I like when John mention Gov Pailin accomplishments; her take against oil companies. Thanks to her, oil companies pay residents higher yearly checks. Great! Therefore, I want to see how much MCCain/Pailin get from mayor corporations (GE, ConED, AIG, Drug Companies.... Would taxpayers like me receive a yearly check from Big Corporations just like Alaskans?

i think the song for obama should be 'i wanna take you higher" by kc and the sunshine band(i think). by the way, has anyone concidered mccain,s age and the fact that if he, for some reason became unable to "lead" we would be STUCK with palin for president. SCARRY!!!!!!!!!!!

Jethro Tull's "Working Man Working Joe"

" . . . I'm doing what I know
for God and the Economy
Big brother watches over me

. . . and the bank smiled down upon me
And mortgaged to the hilt I threw
the breeze of caution behind me

. . . Now

. . . I direct ten limited companies
with seeming consummate expertise two ulcers and a heart disease
a trembling feeling in both knees –

I'm a working John and I'm a working Joe."

This song epitomizes Capitalism at its best - a working Joe rising from the bottom of the economy with BIG BROTHER"S HELP - to attain great success, isn't that what America's all about and what both candidates are saying?

I am reminded of the song Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire, especially if Obama wins. His policies lean more to socialism than democracy. Take from those who have worked hard all their life and give to those who do not have the same values or dedication. This will mean the loss of more jobs and send the wrong message to those who seek to get ahead.


Kathy Sills   October 16th, 2008 9:55 am ET

I think the theme song should be "Tequila" by the Champs because this song always makes me laugh. It reminds me of Pee Wee Herman doing his silly dance. This should shed some humor on the debate. Us Americans need a little more humor in our lives.

Ebony and Ivory by Paul McCartney

Ebony and Ivory
Live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard
Oh Lord, why don't we ?

We all know that people are the same wherever you go
There's good and bad in everyone
We learn to live, we learn to give each other
What we need to survive
Together alive

Ebony and Ivory
Live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard
Oh Lord, why don't we ?

Ebony, Ivory, living in perfect harmony
Ebony, Ivory, ooh

I wrote a song . I'm fed up with both parties I'm not Joe the plumber but I've been self employed for 30 years. The song is as my youtube site under ad1juster called Democraps and Repooplicans both parties take care of themselves

Democraps and Repooplicans

Now the bigwheels in D.C.
Suppose to be watching our money
Bailing out the big banks
While the little guy takes his spanks

I've pretty much had enough
Democraps and Repooplicans
I hope Obama makes his change
Or will it be the same old same

I don't know maybe its just me
Its through my eyes what I see
I like to get rid of all of them
Start this process all over again

I've pretty much had enough
Democraps and Repooplicans
I hope Obama makes his change
Or will it be the same old same

Who the heck are we to trust
It's like the fox and the hen house
Aren't they the ones that made this miss
Plus reaped all the financial benefits

I've pretty much had enough
Democraps and Repooplicans
I hope Obama makes his change
Or will it be the same old same

"Ball of Confusion" by the Temptations... Absolutely the best one:

Eddie: People moving out, people moving in. Why, because of the color of their skin.
Run, run, run but you sure can't hide. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
Vote for me and I'll set you free. Rap on, brother, rap on.
Dennis: Well, the only person talking about love thy brother is the...(preacher.)
And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the...(teacher.)
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration, Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation.
Ball of confusion. Oh yeah, that's what the world is today. Woo, hey, hey.
Paul:
The sale of pills are at an all time high.
Young folks walking round with their heads in the sky.
The cities ablaze in the summer time.
And oh, the beat goes on.
Dennis:
Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul.
Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon.
Politicians say more taxes will solve everything.
Melvin:
And the band played on.
So, round and around and around we go.
Where the world's headed, nobody knows.
[Instrumental]
Oh, great GoogaMooga, can't you hear me talking to you.
Just a ball of confusion.
Oh yeah, that's what the world is today.
Woo, hey, hey.
Eddie:
Fear in the air, tension everywhere.
Unemployment rising fast, the Beatles new record's a gas.
Dennis:
And the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation.
Melvin:
And the band played on.
Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors,
Mod clothes in demand, population out of hand, suicide, too many bills,
Hippies moving to the hills. People all over the world are shouting, 'End the war.'
Melvin:
And the band played on.
[Instrumental]
Great GoogaMooga, can't you hear me talking to you.
Sayin'... ball of confusion.
That's what the world is today, hey, hey.
Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya.
Sayin'... ball of confusion.
That's what the world is today, hey, hey.
Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya.
Sayin'... ball of confusion.

My song title for the debate - Tami Chynn – "Over and Over Again". Although they added some things and had a good debate I heard over and over again the same things AND continued "Slamming" each other.

I feel Obama STILL is avoiding "Telling the Truth" about his affiliation with Ayers. 2001 isn't that far back for affiliation. If he was just doing the job of being an attorney for Acorn he was out to make a living but to further his future establishing his career in politics then that's a different story.

Jeffrey A. Richards   October 16th, 2008 11:17 am ET

It bothers me that people's resentment of George W. Bush, is being reflected on John McCain. That people are being blinded by the mindless meanderings of Barack Obama. What ever happened to the concept of "K.I.S.S.- Keeping It Simple Silly"??? Why give LONG LENGTHY speeches, throwing out unsubstantiated percentages and dollar values out, when a much shorter simplified response is all that is necessary.

I consider myself an intelligent individual. A human being with opposable thumbs, capable of using simple logic. That being said, I still have trouble understanding Obama's "tax policy". He proposes to 'reduce' the taxes on 95% of the American people and 'increase' the taxes on the remaining 5% of America? AND proposes to 'create' jobs in America... The latter makes sense, yes, BUT how does he propose to create these jobs, when he's taxing the 'heck' out of the upper 5%, who will seek workers oversea's in an effort to save money due to their increased income taxes?

In short! Barack Obama talks a good game, BUT I believe.., nay! I know, he FAILS to see the whole picture. On November 4th, I hope and I pray that the American people, as intelligent human being, look past all the, [pardon my english], B.S., and vote for Senator John McCain for president of the United States of America. Leave Barack Obama to appear on "Dancing With The Stars", as dancing around the subject's seems to be his strong suit.

I know Barack Obama is anything but a "cowboy" yet, Obama was the clear winner and the Bonanza theme is perfect for the last of the Pres. debates as the build up and climax of the 3rd debate was a pure bonanza for him as the clear winner. So...da, da, da, da, da, da, dah,

Now that I have had time to think about this , I would have to say the theme song should be Gordon Lightfoot's "If you could read my mind".Let's face it, I don't know where America will be if either one of these candidates win. The past administrations has put America so far in debt, our Great-grand children will still be struggling and what is Obama's agenda? Is it really to serve America? Before you vote ,Winnipeg Obama , find out for yourself his background.

Phyllis Montana-Leblanc   October 17th, 2008 8:43 am ET

After reading so many negative and racist remarks about Sen. Obama, and the way African-Americans are almost always portrayed in the news media etc... I decided to come up with a theme song and it goes a little something like this: The theme song would be: James Brown's "SAY IT LOUD, I'M BLACK AND I'M PROUD!" The reason being, as I stated earlier, because we are always being shown in a negative light and now we have the first African-American, in the history of the United States being nominated for president,and quite possibly(depending on nobody pulling any shady moves)becoming the next president. This song is an uplifting song and was written when it was needed to be heard and I think that time has once again, come around.

How about Dazed and Confused by Led Zepplin

** I thought about substituting the word "woman" with "republican" or "democrat" depending on how you lean. But in light of Palin, perhaps just leave it as is? Or maybe say "that woman"?

Been Dazed and Confused for so long it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
soul of a woman was created below.

You hurt and abuse tellin' all of your lies.
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been.
Gonna love you baby, here I come again.

Every day I work so hard, bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don't know where you're goin', only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?

I've sent some emails to you and to no avail have you responded about what I have asked. I know I'm not the only one asking the same questions. The most people that will go to the polls don't care if the next president is pink. We want someone who will get something done. We want jobs back in the states. We want congress to get off of their butts and work together, whether they are republican or democrat. They act like kindergardners arguing over toys. We put them in to solve things. If they can't do the job get out and let someone in with some common sense, which they don't use take their place. The experts you have on the news don't know squat either as they have the gall to sit there and say they should do this and do that. What did they do when they were advisors to whoever they were advising? They sat back and took the peoples money fattening their pockets.

I'm disgusted by Sarah Palin's recent break with John McCain and his stance on a federal amendment banning gay marriage. Sarah Palin feels that gay marriage is damaging to society. This is precisely the kind of finger pointing and "holier than thou" attitude that cannot be admonished from this earth soon enough. For every one conservative vote that Sarah Palin might gain as a result of her support of a federal amendment to the Constiution banning gay marriage, may she lose one moderate vote as she propels her hypocritical conservative values straight into the face of so many good Americans. How dare she threaten my right to life, liberty,and the pursuit of happiness with my same sex partner! I would never vote for someone proposing a ban on teenage girsl who can't keep their pants up or on the fathers of those babies deciding to leave high school just months short of graduation. Please, Sarah Palin, look within your own household before you start imposing your own ridiculous values on the rest of us. We are not amused!!!!

I'm not planning on voting, WHY well as long as I can remember everyone has said they would cut taxes, NO ONE HAS. SO I am waiting for someone to say {I promise that the senate or the congress will not get their rase until the average-middle class American get theirs.} Guess, I am a person that thinks to be sittng where they are and to get there THEY HAVE mega $$$$$$ .Now, this morning I heard that because the big BOYS don"t like the price of what they are getting for oil {barrel} so they plan on cutting back GREAT there goes the gas prices AGAIN in Appleton WI. Tues. Oct..22 gas was 3.19 Thurs. Oct.23 I paid 3.68 . IF you ask me lets talk about cutting all this MONEY that is being spent on LIES OR so called PROMISES and start telingl us the TRUTH . THAT IS THAT THEY WILL TRY , NOT THAT THEY WILL . MOST OF ALL LETS TALK ABOUT PUTTING A CAP ON THE RASES THAT THE GUYS IN WASHINGTON ARE ALWAYS GETTING AND GIVE THE AVERAGE MIDDLE CLASS AMERICAN A LITTLE BIT OF THEIR CHERRY PIE. Thank you for letting me VENT. Lois Pruitt

MY SONG: DO THE SHUFFLE
why: because as i see it, the McCain/Palin are doing the shuffle to show people how they are going to shuffle our money/jobs/health AROUND to the food line.

Can't afford much more when living paycheck to paycheck and they have never said how they are going to prevent companies from closing down in the USA and sending manufacturing overseas for cheaper labor.

Always assuring to know that when I lived in alaska, i could have been employed by PALIN such as the 100 people that were her friends and donors. That is always a good way to look at job security until the next govenor comes in lol. They need to make that the dance theme for their party. OH YEAH DID I TELL YA' I AM REPUBLICAN now voting DEMOCRATE because i don't trust the REPUBLICANS.

Is it not in our constitution that no one can run for any office if they are
not citizens of the United States. Why have we let someone run for president that does not have a United States citizen birth certificate. Have we closed our eyes to who this person is. He was born in Kenya and is not a citizen.

I am so tired of hearing about Sarah's wordrobe, the one that needs
(Sarah's clothes) to be donated to is Obama's wife. She needs a make over in Her dressing, and also how she walks, she looks like she is going shopping for groceries.

The media is so unfair, it is always, or most of the time one sided.

"Stuck in the Middle with you"... by Stealers Wheel from the 70's.

How dare does Barrack Obama put down John McCain and all of us who served in the military. I am a member of VFW post 7330 and am proud of my service and association with John McCain. Mr. Obama has done nothing but serve himself. What a sad state this country is in when people like him are allowed to put down veterens. Earn some respect sir before your backers/constituents (ha ha) demand their returns for your campaign support! (large cash given to you demands repayment?)

Robin,
As a Native American in (NM-Apache) the U.S. I was raised all over the world through adoption/State Dept./Embassies around the world. I always remember Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George and W. Since I have discovered my roots (native) after my adopted mother lost a 9 yr battle with breast cancer, I still find my self drawn to Mc Cain and Palin and their support for Native Americans!!!

Someone asked about the candidates stance on abortion earlier. I'm really wondering why more of the media hasn't spoken about their stance on Veterans. McCain is a war hero and is very pro-military and we don't hear much about Obama's views on Veterans at all. I'm wondering if Richard Lui could compare how Obama and McCain vote on Veterans issues such as funding, healthcare, and mental health resources. I find it curious that no major veterans groups or PAC's have endorsed McCain.

Thanks Richard!

"Torn Between Two Lovers" comes instantly to mind. I would have to modify the lyrics a bit........"Torn Between Two Liars". This election is almost a no win situation. No matter which way we go we'll be ...."feelin like a fool"!
